Dope

A truly original indie comedy thriller with brains and heart. What more do you need, people?

GRADE
A

Inside Out

Inside the head of an 11-year-old girl controlled by her emotions. It's not quite as terrifying as that sounds.

Tomorrowland

Because no one should see it, maybe it should be called Neverland.

Jurassic World

As it turns out, it's STILL a bad idea to have a theme park with dinosaurs.

GRADE

On DVD

Chappie

A cliched Robocop riff stuffed with an insane South African rave-rap band.

An action-comedy that's one bad recurring joke away from darn good!
